Endlich keine halbtoten Vögel mehr in der Wohnung! Während unserem älteren Kater die Vögel und Kleintiere nicht gleichgültiger sein könnten, macht es sich unser Neuzugang zur Aufgabe, regelmässig Vögel in allen Farben in der Wohnung zu verteilen. Das schmerzt nicht nur das Tierfreundherz, es frustrierte und machte jede Menge Arbeit. Mit der KittyFlap ist damit schluss. Wurde zu Beginn noch lauthals die Beute zumindest vor der Tür präsentiert, Zugang war ja dank KittyFlap Beuteerkennung geschlossen, verzichtet unser junger Kater nun gänzlich auf das anschleppen seiner Jagdtrophäen.Absolute Kaufempfehlung!

Vor einiger Zeit habe ich das Startup bei der Höhle der Löwen gesehen und konnte kaum abwarten, bis das Produkt verfügbar ist. Ich bin begeistert nun einer der ersten Personen sein zu dürfen, die dieses Produkt testen kann um endlich Mäusefrei zu leben.

Als Katzenbesitzer bin ich nach wie vor auf der Suche nach der passenden Lösung, um Fremdtiere aus unserem Haus fernzuhalten, die unser Kater regelmäßig als Ausdruck seiner Zuneigung nach seinen Streifzügen mitbringt. Ich bin jetzt schon begeistert und glücklich, dass ich mir im Vorverkauf ein Exemplar der KittyFlap sichern konnte.

FAQs

It is extremely simple and easy to install with a little manual skill. We supply the templates as well as the necessary mounting material.

You can find our drilling template here.

A motion sensor reacts to the cat when it approaches the cat flap. This triggers the camera. The artificial intelligence (AI) analyzes the image to determine whether the cat is carrying something in its mouth. If the software detects prey, the cat flap remains closed.

KittyFlap® recognizes all prey in your pet’s mouth thanks to AI.

KittyFlap® has a built-in animal chip scanner. The microchip implanted in your cat has a unique serial number. Access is regulated on the basis of this serial number.

Prey detection is very reliable. In addition, we offer an automatic online update, as soon as we have an improved algorithm, we will install it on your KittyFlap®.

If your cat no longer has any prey. However, you can also configure a timer.

You can program an infinite number of cats on your KittyFlap®.

We store your programmed animal chip numbers locally. If you save your cat’s name and a picture via the app, this will also be saved locally. Images are only saved locally for a short time and then deleted.

KittyFlap® only saves pictures locally that contain a cat and only for a short time. We make your pictures available to you in your app.

We use secure cryptography and carry out regular software updates. The KittyFlap software is regularly tested to ensure that there are no vulnerabilities. The Kitty Cloud only contains anonymized data that cannot be traced back to individuals.

We are constantly improving the algorithm and updates are delivered automatically if you agree.

The KittyFlap® requires an external 12V power adapter, which we supply.

The KittyFlap® can be operated remotely via app. Images are delivered to your app.

KittyFlap prey detection also works without the app, but has fewer functions. We recommend using the app.

KittyFlap prey detection also works without chip detection. You can switch off chip detection via the app, but leave prey detection switched on.

To register, you need the app and the KittyFlap® Internet. Once this has been set up, access and loot detection will work.

The KittyFlap® can always recognize implanted transponders (animal chips or RFID chips). However, these must be as large as possible, but at least 12 mm and comply with ISO standard 11784/11785 FDX-B. However, access control via implanted chips cannot be guaranteed, as a variety of factors such as implant depth, position and location of the chips can impair this special function. The main problem in the detection of implanted chips lies in the small size of the chips. The smaller the chip, the fewer copper coils it contains and the less able the mini-chips are to send back the signals emitted by the KittyFlap®. Because implanted chips were not intended to open doors, but to be read by the vet at the shortest possible distance, the detection range is correspondingly short. This is within a range of 10 cm as long as the chip has not yet been implanted in the animal. Once the chip is in the animal, the detection range in normal use is only 0 to 10 cm. In general, the recognition of implanted chips in cats works adequately after the familiarization phase. As a rule of thumb, the greater the distance between the implantation site (usually the neck area) and the antenna, the lower the chance that the chip can be read over this distance.

The antenna built into the KittyFlap® has two functions: Firstly, to create a magnetic induction field and secondly, to receive the identification of the animal transponder. Metal objects and animal transponders are not always optimally compatible as they can interfere with the magnetic field. On the one hand, the signals are shielded and thus prevent the animal chips from being detected; on the other hand, the signals are reflected so strongly, e.g. in the case of installation in an aluminum garage door, that the RFID system could be disrupted. Installation in metal doors is also generally not advisable if you want to use access control via animal transponders.

The KittyFlap® is technically compatible with all conventional animal identification chips in accordance with ISO standard 11784 / 11785 FDX-B.

However, this technology dates back to the 1970s and was standardized almost 20 years ago (1996). This makes it hopelessly outdated and brings with it a number of annoying restrictions. But it allows such an implanted chip to be used as a key for the KittyFlap® under normal circumstances.

However, as the manufacturer of the KittyFlap®, we have no influence on the quality of the transponder in your pet and therefore cannot give any guarantee with regard to its function or range.

We therefore advise you to check with your animals before installation whether the detection range is sufficient. If it does not work, this is not a malfunction of the device, but a technical limitation of the ID chip.
